Leucadendron Senorita - L. salignum x L. discolor hybrid

Email

  • Title:  Leucadendron Senorita - L. salignum x L. discolor hybrid
  • Description:  Developed in South Africa in the early 1990’s as part of an extensive hybridising programme by Gail Littlejohn and named by the New Zealand grower who imported material, this is an excellent cut flower. The very long straight stems of 1 metre (3.3 ft) or more bear beautiful cream bracts flushed with bronze-pink which age to a bright orange-red shade, these colours occurring right through the winter months into early spring. A female form, it reaches 2 m (6.5 ft) or more in height, is erect growing and produces masses of flowering stems as can be seen in the illustration. It must be pruned heavily in mid-spring to promote vigorous new growth and the resulting good stem length. Fast growing and usually frost hardy, this lovely cultivar is easily grown in most well drained soils and sunny positions.
